I've written about the value of taking vacations before. During this holiday break I took a break from blogging too. Most of you were not reading business blogs anyway. It was good to give my mind a thinking break, too. It feels just as good to be back.
During this vacation I worked on a paper model of Sleeping Beauty's Castle from Disneyland. It is a nice lesson in patience and slowing down. I am about 1/3 finished. So far so good. I highly recommend finding an activity that frees your mind from work.
Here's wishing all of you a wonderful 2007.
